How to remove knobs?

Post by Spainman » Fri Jun 20, 2014 11:41 am

How do you guys remove the rotary knobs? I tried simply pulling them out with fingers but it seems impossible.
Are they glued to the pot axis? Are they metal or a plastic imitation? Thought about maybe heating them...

No problem. :)

You may have also noted that there is a slot in the top of the pot spindle. That lines up with the 'bar' that is at the top of the knob hole which you should take note of when you come to refitting them.
